Students

...we haven’t stopped praying for you. We are asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, so that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God
— Colossians 1:9-10

 

LETTER TO GRADUATING SRs/PARENTS

SENIOR  RECOGNITION SUNDAY


Our prayer is that we foster a community where students are sent confidently into the world as a developing follower of Christ who knows the love, hope, and purpose that God has given to all people.  We do this through the partnership with parents by walking alongside students to connect with God, with others, and with their leaders. 

For Middle School students (grades 7-8), our hope is that they will develop a faith that is their own in Jesus Christ. 
For High School students (grades 9-12), our hope is that they own their faith daily through being obedient to God’s Word.

STUDENT'S EVENT CALENDAR


SAFETY & SECURITY

Student Ministries are led by adults who have been trained and who have undergone a criminal background check.
These adults have a desire to mentor students into fostering community, accountability, and friendship.

SUNDAY MORNINGS: Sundays  |  9a or 10:30a |  for students in grades 7-12
